: good evening. this is a developing situation but one high-ranking source in the u.s. government is telling us at this hour that four americans have been freed, one of them injured, after an airborne military assault on terrorists in algeria. we want to empsiels assault is still ongoing and the information is fluid. the americans were taken hostage yesterday, along with dozens of others, at a plant in a remote oil and gas field near the libyan border. a group that claims to be affiliated with al qaeda seizedly the plant. they said it was in retaliation for the french military attacks on islamic extremists in nearby mali. the situation is not entirely clear. we do not have definitive information on the number of00s or casualties. algerian authorities say tonight a number of hostage hostages and terrorists have been killed. traveling in london, defense secretary leon panetta said either seven or eight americans were taken in the original terrorist attack. mark phillips picks up the story. >> reporter: early today, what had been a hostage-take standoff at a massive natural gas plant
. >> cenk: fascinating to me, because insight into how the media and government interplay i guess because michael, i mean, i would -- rahm emanuel does not react like this to every reporter. why would he to you? >> i thought about this a lot in the subsequent hours and days. one of the things, there's a number of sensitive topics that kind of hit him all at once. first was the fact that he had just lost this battle with the teacher's union and at this very ritzy, high color fundraiser bragging about how good he was at raising money from corporations. the second is the super pac funding. mayor emanuel was the co chair of the obama campaign until the end of august. then all of a sudden, he became a fund racer for priorities u.s.a. a super pac. we all know, are pretty familiar with the super pac law in that there should be no coordination between a campaign and super pac and here you have a major co chair going over to the other side without anyone sort of raising an eyebrow and then once he gets there, he makes all these phone calls and raises a bunch of money. i was never able to confirm h
? >> that is things we cannot talk about what the government will not talk about. obviously a special mission is being prepared that would emerge if they're executed, but let's be clear, the lead is the algerians. they are on the ground surrounding the flight. some hostages have been killed, others have been freed, but very delicate and difficult situation. the fact that we have a drone next to the algerians and sharing of intelligence is most of what we can do at this point in time. although possible negotiations with third parties in the middle east including islamist government. we are using everything we can to free the american hostages. melissa: what is the relationship like right now? >> it has been very good in the past several years. but we're also having problems among each other. but on the larger scale, algeria fights al qaeda with us. melissa: how do you see this playing out from here, how do you see it and? speak ospeaker this situation wd with a military operation because al qaeda is determined not to negotiate, and the hope is al qaeda will be destroyed and all the house this will be r
concerned about reports of loss of life and are seeking clarity from the government of algeria. >> the white house and its european allies say that they were caught off guard. they were not given any warning when the algerians decided to storm the facility. they didn't give their european allies or the americans any heads up. >> what about the u.s. military, jennifer, what did they do to help or try to do? again the pentagon's offers to help were rejected. algerian did not accept that algeria did send one unarmed drone over the bp facility to provide surveillance capability. they did not send any ground troops. the algerians essentially went it alone, killing more than 15 kidnappers according to algerian sources. and they say 30 hostage. what is clear after this incident is the growing al qaeda threat in north africa. >> al qaeda is still there. they are still a threat. they are a threat in yemen. they are a threat in somalia. they are a threat as we speak in mali. >> instability in mali has created the opportunity for a staging base and safe haven for terrorists. again it's still unclear ho
syria, with continued bombings by government planes and clashes between troops and anti-government rebels. the obama administration is continuing its push to rally support for sweeping plan to address gun violence. on thursday, vice-president joe biden called for action before hundreds of u.s. mayors gathered in washington, d.c. foreign annual meeting. in his address, biden referenced the shooting rampage in newtown, connecticut that claimed the lives of 20 children, six school staff, and the shooter's mother. >> we have to do something. i hope we all agree there is a need to respond to the carnage on our streets and in our schools. i hope we all agree that mass shootings like the one we witnessed in newtown 34 days ago cannot continue to be tolerated. that tragedy in all my years of public life i think is -- has affected the public psyche in a way i have never seen before. >> a new poll affirms vice president joe biden's claim about the impact of new town, finding it affected the public opinion on guns or deeply than other shootings. a new poll says 54% of americans believe gun co
is, these groups operate in areas where there is no central government control. you're talking about countries such as libya that have gone through their revolutions, but in algeria, for instance, this is a huge portion of the sahara desert. you don't have local authority there. you don't have security forces there. these al qaeda militants are able to operate with impunity and make a lot of. with these criminal operations. >> to give the primmer on mali, for those who follow developments there, this has been an extraordinary year for that country. effectively. you'll have to correct me if i'm wrong here, effectively the northern part of mali is completely out of the control of what should be the central government and is effectively in control of al qaeda-associated militan militants? >> right. and why did the french come in now into mali? you might wonder why a country like france would send hundreds and soon thousands of ground troops to that country to try to battle islamist rebels when this is the kind of operation that could end up costing france quite a lot, not just in terms
now have the nra arguing -- >> for larger government. >> for larger federal government, putting armed people like government troops into schools. as opposed to leaving them -- >> the nra came out with a proposal to put guards in schools, everybody from the president's party dumped on them. they went after them hammer and tongs. >> that specifically to the president is not about democrats. >> push back -- >> and the president did not sate. it's just a lie. >> let me just push back on that just to play devil's advocate here. if at elite schools they have private security and armed guards, what is wrong with at public schools having armed guards? >> and why not pay for it? >> right. so if you want -- if you're arguing for that massive expansion of government, what that would require, right, and we're in a budget -- >> it's not massive. >> it is massive. >> we're just hypothetically talking. >> they wouldn't even pay for the couple million that was in a safe school program. they cut that down to zero. and now they're basically saying we want to put armed guards in every school. and to ove
health care is, it's very government-controlled and it's becoming more government-controlled so it's the opposite of free enterprise capitalism. >> all that and more in just minutes away, first, manti mania. notre dame football star manti te'o in the center of a big hoax, at the the victim or in on the hoax. and a teammate calling him a liar. >> and joining us with the latest facts on this story and jack, before we get to your conversations with teammates of him, i'm curious, set the stage. what are the facts as we know it tonight? >> well, the facts are so convoluted. it's such a long, deep rabbit hole where the story comes from. the quick version is that here you have manti te'o, star linebacker, notre dame, goes on to come in second place in heisman trophy ballots. he had this girlfriend he allegedly met a few years ago, she allegedly was diagnosed with leukemia and he kind of rode this wave of this tragic love story that happened to coincide on the same day as his grandmother's died, this fictitious girlfriend passed away and he was crying on the side line of the michigan win m
draft pick. i think there are a lot of concerns from those people, the governing bodies of those particular awards and their trusts with regard to what he did or didn't know after he got that call on december 6th. >> greta: well, apparently, i mean, two days before you met him, but maybe i'm in the minority, but you know, i think of him, he's only 22. >> yeah. >> greta: and when, you know, this is like -- if he knew something about it, that was really stupid. if he got duped, that was pretty stupid, but he's only 22. let him come out, make a statement, by someone and move on. give him a break, he's just 22. >> greta, i'm right there with you. i've he got a daughter that's 22 years of age. i understand what can happen and anybody in our culture that's successful is what the rest of the country apparently wants to bring down. we live in a world where good is bad and bad is good. and i think that manti te'o if anything, he's guilty of naivete, but beyond that, okay, once you did know and you understood what was at stake financially, that's where the question comes into play. it's a
people -- the governing bodies of those particular awards and their trusts with regard to what he did or didn't know after he got that call on december 6. >> apparently, he knew it two days before he met him, maybe i am in the minority, but he's only 22. you know, if he knew something about it, that was really stupid. if he got duped, that was pretty stupid. but he is only 22. let him come out, make a statement. get an interview by someone and move o. give him a break. he's just 22. >> reporter: i am right there with you. i have a daughter that's 22 years of age. i understand whatt can happen. anybody in our culture who is successful is what the rest of the country wants to bring down. we live in a world where good is bad and bad is good. i think that manti te'ono, if anything is guilty of naivete. beyond that, it becomes okay, once you did be and you understood what was at stake financially, that's where the question comes into play. it's a little bit like that theory of the last investors into the bernie madoff ponzi scheme. if it was just about embarrass scpment you couldn't go the
these great people to this day's fantastic events. >> a president who says government can help improve the lives of everyday americans. president barack obama fits that description and so does fdr, franklin delano roosevelt. let's bringing in personal historian doug brinkley to talk more about this. you've said fdr has been on your mind a lot as we countdown to the second inauguration. tell us why. >> in 1933 in march when fdr famously said we have nothing to fear but fear itself, that's because we were in the great depression. people were really worried what was going to happen. due to the new deal, due to the first 100 days, the fdr created the ccc and tva and the alphabet the soup of the new deal. we started getting out of the great depression. but by the time he gave his second inaugural in 1937, we were still in it. similar to president obama, he inherited the great recession, was able to do t.a.r.p. and all of this. won re-election, yet, there are still millions of americans living in the poverty and the middle class is still struggling. you've got watch that you're not triumphan
and the kidnapping is in revenge for french intervention in the country of mali. overnight the algerian government has been in talks with both united states and france, and we understand that the algerian government is now talking to tribal leaders that apparently do have ties to the terrorists. here's how the thing went down. there was a bus carrying american, british, norwegian french and japanese workers. that bus was ambushed by two armed men and two people were killed. they took off to the gas field and the total number of hostages remains unclear but reports say it ranges from 15 to 40, including 7 americans. >> they are a threat. they are a threat to our country. they are a threat to the world. and wherever they locate and try to establish a base for operations, i think that constitutes a threat that all of us have to be concerned about. >> the u.s. government is also calling this a terror attack. and this is the guy believed to be behind it all. his name is moqtar, a one-eyed veteran jihaddist with ties to al qaeda. he was apparently kicked out of the network because they say he was more i
prime minister david cam ran says the terrorists were large in number and heavily armed. his government received no advance word of this rescue operation. defense secretary leon panetta is in london this morning. he said this morning that u.s. officials are quote, woulding around the clock to assure the safe return of our citizens, bill. bill: throughout this ordeal we have heard this could be tied to what is happening with the french in the neighboring country of mali. now is that true or can we dismiss that now, james? >> reporter: no, i think it is undeniably a fact are to. the group that carried out the original assault on the bp complex is called the masked brigade. they are based in mali and are an offshoot of al qaeda. islamist terrorists took over the northern half of mali some nine months ago making it the largest terrorist safe may have in the world. france just dispatched 2500 troops to mali. speaking in italy yesterday, secretary panetta said the u.s. decimated al qaeda's leadership then he added a important qualification. >> there are still a threat. they're a threat in yem
by the minute. the white house now saying it is in constant contact with the algerian government. we're getting brand new video showing groups of hostages finally free what is described as a horrifying ordeal. there are reports of hostages with explosives strapped to their chest as others were executed. the algerian state news agency is reporting that at least 32 hostages remain unaccounted for at that natural gas plant where this all began following a raid by algerian forces. it is unclear at this time how many americans are still held. our defense secretary, leon panetta, addressed the crisis a short time ago. >> terrorists should be on notice that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, not in north africa, not anywhere. jenna: the defense secretary speaking in london there. terrorists affiliated with al qaeda are holed up at that gas plant. they have been there now for three days, demanding an end to the anti-terror campaign playing out right now in neighboring mali. that big area of north africa is part of what we're seeing with this rise of al qaeda in that continent. chie
of questions already are coming from the united states about the algerian government's tactics in the operation that could have put the hostages in jeopardy. now, we also want to let you know that right now, there's a chartered flight en route of bp employees from algeria. it is headed towards london to gatwick airport. now, that could be landing at any moment. we don't yet know if the passengers are any of the freed hostages or if there are americans on board, but as we get that information, we're going to share that with you. the brother of an irish national who escaped from captivity had a harrowing story. he spoke to cnn today and described what happened to his brother. >> yeah, but just found out recently that he'd been mered to sleep with duct tape over his mouth and his hands tied and then we find out how he got free and five out of the compound or to a different part of the compound, and there were five jeeps and the algerian army had bombeded the jeeps and out of the five jeeps, the bomb had wiped out four of them. and they had obviously lost their lives, but lucky enough for my brothe
militants. u.s. government officials tell cnn that may not necessarily, though be the case. let's get straight to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence working this story for us. chris, be what is the very latest that you're hearing? >> wolf, the latest that we're getting from u.s. officials is that some americans may have escaped but some may still be held by those hostage takers and they are still seeing signs perhaps of some intermittent fighting suggesting that perhaps this isn't over yet. as the hostage situation stretched to a second day, u.s. officials scrambled to find a resolution and determine the state of the americans still in militant hands. >> this incident will be resolved, we hope with a minimum loss of life. but when you deal with these relentless terrorists, life is not in any way precious to them. >> americans and other western workers were on as about when multiple militants attacked. the militants took hostage at this gas plant heavily armed with rocket grenades and forced some hostages to wear explosive vests. the militants may have t
together. that's the limit on how much money the government can borrow. the feds say they could run out of money to pay the bills as soon as next month but republicans refuse to raise the debt limit without new spending cuts. doug mckelway is life on capitol hill. what is the plan from these house democrats? good evening. >> well, bill, they introduced legislation today that would basically amend the statute. the law that put the debt ceiling in place in the first place. it would do so by removing the cap on the treasury of borrowing money. its chances of passage in the republican controlled house are basically slim and none. but at least it allows democrats to paint the republicans as extremists in their desire to attach the debt ceiling to spending cuts. and that's exactly what congressman gerald nadler democrat of new york did today along with other democrats, listen up. >> the intent on blackmailing the country. they say to us if you do not agree to massive cuts to social security, medicare, medicaid, and other social programs, we will refuse to raise the debt ceiling and thereby ca
